How to Apply

The University of Iowa Anesthesia Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellowship Program uses the Central Application Service administered by SF Match. For the 2022-2023 recruiting cycle, candidates may begin their applications Nov. 9, 2020. We will begin reviewing applications Dec. 1, 2020.

The interview

To minimize health risks associated with travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in compliance with institutional, state, and national recommendations, we will conduct all interviews for the 2020-2021 recruiting season online only. We will not offer any in-person interviews or site visits during this cycle. The online-only interview requirement applies to all candidates, internal or external, so that we may provide an equitable experience to all applicants.

We typically interview 10-20 candidates for 1 position. Interviews will take place March through May, 2021. Match Day for the Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesia fellowship is June 14, 2021, for a July 2022 start.

Invitations to interview

Interview invitations from our program will be extended via SFMatch. You will be able to see available times and dates and self-schedule your interview.

What should I expect on the interview day?

Your interview day will be roughly 4 hours. Morning sessions will run 8 a.m. to noon, and afternoon sessions will be 1-5 p.m. Each session will feature a breakout session for Q&A with our current fellow.

We plan to conduct interviews on the Zoom platform. The interview day includes an overview of the program, a virtual tour, and interviews with the program director and other faculty.
